Re: Meteorite Explodes Over Russia, Just Outside Moscow!

Ha! If that ever happens over North Korea, they would automatically think it's an attack.

Actually, there were some Russian officials claiming it was the Americans testing a weapon. Smiley Frustrated

Hope no one got hurt though Smiley Surprised


Unfortunately, yes, people were hurt. About 1,100 people seeked medical attention; mostly from glass shattered by the airburst's shockwave.

 

This meteor was only 1/3 the size of the asteroid in the Tunguska Event in 1908. Imagine if a Tunguska-sized asteroid (also the same size as the near-miss asteroid a few days ago) were to hit instead.


Oh my god, I hope that they are doing better now. And I don't want to think of the Tunguska sized asteroid hitting so close to Moscow Smiley Surprised

Moble, here is a picture of the crater.

 

Keep in mind, the meteor exploded. So this crater is just from a fragment of the meteorite.
